11.00 am Easter Service
The service of Holy Communion is on our Website. The collects for each day are below.
I will provide a series of meditations for Good Friday on the website.
The readings for Easter Sunday will be added to the website together with the sermon.
You might like to find some flowers and place them in a special quiet area of your home, possibly with a candle if you have one. Its somewhere where you can sit and just be still at the times of our services and just be enveloped by the presence of God. You can also be aware that you are united with everyone else from Little Malvern Priory.
Silence is kept.
God our Father,
you have invited us to share in the supper
which your Son gave to his Church
to proclaim his death until he comes:
may he nourish us by his presence,
and unite us in his love;
who is alive and reigns with you,
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, now and for ever.
Prayer after Communion
Lord Jesus Christ,
we thank you that in this wonderful sacrament
you have given us the memorial of your passion:
grant us so to reverence the sacred mysteries
of your body and blood
that we may know within ourselves
and show forth in our lives
the fruit of your redemption,
for you are alive and reign, now and for ever.
Readings: 1 Corinthians Ch. 11 vs. 23 26, Gospel, John Ch 13 vs. 1-17
There is no blessing on Maundy Thursday. That is because it is seen as continued b y the vigil through Thursday night and that then leads into the Service on Good Friday.
Lord of all life and power,
who through the mighty resurrection of your Son
overcame the old order of sin and death
to make all things new in him:
grant that we, being dead to sin
and alive to you in Jesus Christ,
may reign with him in glory;
to whom with you and the Holy Spirit
be praise and honour, glory and might,
now and in all eternity.
Prayer after Communion
God of Life,
who for our redemption gave your only-begotten Son
to the death of the cross,
and by his glorious resurrection
have delivered us from the power of our enemy:
grant us so to die daily to sin,
that we may evermore live with him in the joy of his risen life;
through Jesus Christ our Lord.
The God the Father
By whose glory Christ was raised from the dead
Strengthen you to walk with him in his risen life;
And the blessing of God Almighty,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit
be upon you and all whom you love
this day and evermore.
